Charles: You're not in my league Joe

I'll admit- I am biased towards the Boston Celtics.  I will admit I've grappled with the statistics of Joe Dumars and Jo Jo White.  I'm not relenting- Joe Dumars does not deserve to be in the Hall of Fame if Jo Jo isn't.

Sometimes I'm a little confused with all the admiration Dumars gets.  Yes he was a quality player.  But he's a notch below Clyde Drexler and Reggie Miller and Mitch Richmond in my opinion (same for Reggie Lewis).  He has 2 titles, the same number as Jo Jo White.  Dumars has one less All Star game appearance.  16.1 career ppg for Dumars, 17.2 ppg for White.

    You and your Mitch Richmond man crush. lol. Interesting comparison of Dumars to JoJo. You should do a full feature on JoJo. Many fans, like myself, don't know a huge amount about him. Some might even think he was a member of Jodeci.

    This is an interesting stance on Dumars. He is a perfect example of a guy that was a money player who gave you more than numbers. Very interesting to compare Dumars, Jo Jo and DJ. As we all realize DJ not being in the Hall of Fame is a bad joke. I think what hurt JoJo was not playing long enough.

    Mitch Richmond was a terrific scorer, but I have a hard time putting him in the same sentence as Drexler and Miller, simply because of lack of postseason moments, which of course is not Mitch's fault as he was on some bad teams.

    The what could have been when it comes to Reggie Lewis still saddens me so much to this day...

    I would agree Dumars should not be there, unless Jo Jo White is too.
